An enjoyable conspiracy thriller in the manner of John Frankenheimer's Seven Days in May.

Stupendous turn from Romola Garai in the lead role but, while this sets up intrigue and atmosphere well, the plot devices creak audibly towards the end.

A political yarn - sometimes creepy, sometimes daft - in the Hitchcockian vein.

A ripping, old-school conspiracy thriller.

Poliakoff's conspiracy thriller about Hitler-pleasers and appalling aristos comes with all the bucolic loveliness you'd expect. But its biggest boost comes from Garai, whose fragile, hypnotic turn should make the actress a gong contender.

There's much to admire in the film, such as sequences of the often forgotten panic when family pets were systematically put down as war became inevitable, but there's quite a lot to argue about too.

Poliakoff cleverly translates the mood of fear and uncertainty in Britain into a dark psychological maze that leads Anne to the edge of insanity.

Poliakoff gives the finale a feverish intensity that's genuinely shocking and works surprisingly well.

This pre-war drama is a bundle of suspense, mystery and personal emotion that's beautifully filmed and sharply played by a first-rate cast.

Not quite glorious... but fans of good old-fashioned wartime mysteries will find it really rather spiffing. Pip pip!
